'Excellent All-Round Footballer’ – United youngster endorsed by Scholes could go out on loan

Larnell Cole, who has been backed by Old Trafford legend Paul Scholes could leave for a Championship club soon.

Manchester United winger Larnell Cole could be the next in line for a Championship loan move. The exciting attacking midfielder has been tipped for the very top by many highly respected coaches and players in the game, none smaller than Manchester United legend Paul Scholes, who said Cole was:

‘’An excellent all round footballer.

‘’He can play wide right, central midfielder and he can probably play other positions too.

‘’He’s just someone who’s supremely confident on the ball, capable of scoring goals, making chances and he has a chance of being a good player for us, I think.

‘’He’s really impressed me’’

Already linked to moves this season which include Derby County, Leicester City and Leeds United which haven’t come to fruition for one reason or another, it’s been rumoured that Bournemouth have been courting the youngster on the off-chance he fancies playing on the coast.

What to expect from Larnell Cole

A right-midfielder by trade but can hold his own in any of the midfield positions, he is an exciting attacking player and possess incredible ball control when dribbling and a good amount of strength for a young player.

As a young player he was often earmarked ahead of Adnan Januzaj and Jesse Lingard who both played in the same side and was thought to be first inline out of the natural United young players.

He played a huge part in Manchester United’s Under 21 final’s as he bagged a hat-trick in the semi against Liverpool and scored 2 goals in the final which United would 3-1.

Where could he go

Having been linked to several big clubs already in the Championship it seems that Bournemouth are currently in the lead to sign the young player.

Bournemouth play fearless attacking football and have scored more goals than QPR this season, defensively they’re questionable and that is why they currently sit 15th in the league table.

I expect that he will move on until at least January before the ‘emergency loan window’ closes on 28th November and whoever signs him will be a better side for it.
